Essex: FC Barcelona stars arrive in the UK

WITH the UEFA Champions League final just a few days away, FC Barcelona players have arrived in the UK to prepare to face Manchester United.

The Spanish champions landed at Stansted Airport late last night, travelling ahead of schedule to avoid any ash cloud delays.

The team had been due to fly in on Thursday but the plans were changed following recent events in Iceland.

The team, including stars such as Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Xavi and David Villa, will spend the next few days training in London ahead of Saturday evening’s final at Wembley.
